Dear 2022, You're Not Living Up to Expectations

As the year began I had five wishes for how I wanted 2022.

So far not impressed, to say the least. I wanted you to make COVID harmless. You're some of the way there, but that new breakout in China... Not cool, mate.

I wanted you to save the world. The climate needs swift action. I haven't seen any. On the other hand I've seen that governments and people are willing to take swift action and make sacrifices, which is cool. We just need to apply that to our survival as a civilisation. Please.

Also: I asked specifically for no surprises. WTF, 2022!? Not cool. Really not cool.
